4th International Workshop UBIOCHEM


UBIOCHEM IV is addressed to scientists and experts from both industry and academia whose are active in the area of biomass valorization via thermochemical and biological processes.

Emphasis will be placed on the utilization of lignocellulosic biomass, algae and non edible crops or low quality oils, which do not compete with food. In terms of conversion processes, the use of green catalytic methodologies (heterogeneous, homogeneous, enzymatic and photo-catalysis) and novel reaction media will be presented. Moreover, alternative biomass-based products that are safer and have a reduced environmental footprint (e.g. biodegradable polymers) will be discussed, along with the integrated biorefinery and energy conservation concepts.

“UBIOCHEM IV: Utilization of Biomass for Sustainable Fuels & Chemicals”, the fourth International Workshop of COST Action CM0903 is organized by the Institute of Chemical Technology of Valencia (ITQ) which is a joint research center of the Superior Council of Scientific Research (CSIC) and the Polytechnic University of Valencia.


Plazo: Desde el 14 de octubre de 2013 hasta el 16 de octubre de 2013
